The goal of the proposal is to create a working thesis statement and basic research plan that considers context, audience, purpose, and presents potential sources. A proposal is not an outline, as it does not structure the paper. Rather, a proposal offers direction for research needs and gives your professor an opportunity to provide feedback before the drafting process.
Access the Pro-Position Proposal Template and complete the six required sections:
– Research Question

– Synthesis Matrix (Add the 3 pro sources.)
